Spatial impression: measurement and perception of concert hall acoustics and reproduced sound

Abstract

The fields of concert hall acoustics and sound reproduction are traditionally studied separately, with little interaction between them. However, it is apparent that a great deal can be gained from combining the two disciplines, as long as the differences are considered. Firstly, the perceived spatial impression afforded by the two acoustical situations is reviewed, and the similarities and differences are highlighted. Secondly, the optimum method for applying concert hall measurements to sound reproduction is assessed. Finally, the potential success of applying the developments made in measurements of sound reproduction systems to concert hall acoustics is
